Chief Executive Officer's Welcome

Welcome to The Gryphon Multi Academy Trust, which was set up as an educational charity and company limited by guarantee on 1st April 2011 by the governing body of The Arnewood School. At this time it felt appropriate to make the school a multi academy trust with a focus on the future.

The Trust was developed by converting The Arnewood School, which is a mixed secondary school and sixth form, formally a Foundation School with Technology College status controlled by Hampshire County Council, into an 11 to 19 Academy.

On 21st December 2015 the name of the multi-academy trust was changed from The Arnewood School Multi Academy Trust to The Gryphon Multi Academy Trust. The change in name was to give the Trust a clear separate identity to enable it to look for like minded partners that will develop within the trust’s ambitions. Following a two year trial in-house we were successful in being able to open The Eaglewood Academy, an Alternative Provision school for 7 – 16 year olds.

We have a corporate plan which sets clear aims for the Trust and gives it a sense of direction that will be shared by all the stakeholders that are under the Gryphon’s wing.
